The United Kingdom of Twisted Duality is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Dave with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, unlimited-speed roads, and public floggings. The democratic population of 15.505 billion Twisted Dualityians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Davidian. The average income tax rate is 86.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Twisted Dualityian economy, worth a remarkable 1,363 trillion Pounds a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 87,910 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All mothers are allowed six months fully-paid maternity leave, Dave has just been declared ruler of Twisted Duality in an international press conference, the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, and annulments are on the rise as couples discover their ancestors were born in the same hospitals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Twisted Duality's national animal is the Duck Billed Platypus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Twisted Duality is ranked 239,320th in the world and 6,712th in the West Pacific for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 143.88 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
